Went to this museum while visiting family in Astoria....didn't expect much but I was so pleasantly surprised! I didn't realize the history/involvement of this area in film/TV! Museum is compact but impressive, lots of hands on exhibits. A must see for TV/movie buffs.

This little museum is worth the trip out to Astoria. It doesn't take too long to do the whole thing and there are fun and interactive exhibits throughout. Fun for both kids and adults. Also a lot of great memorabilia and historical exhibits.
